Some more photos. ( Note not in order of flight, just random shots )

The last photo on this page ( reply #11) is why I went from the East to west coast, so I could show my mum the finished plane.

This is Andrew and myself inside the 747 jumbo engine that is on display at the Longreach museum. You get a tour all over this huge thing.

Flooding on the way to Birdsville. A low front went from the north to the south of Oz, just had to let it pass, then move on. This is near the point that I turned back, I was down to around 500 ft here not happy, so back we went to Birdsville. After 30 mins with a 20 kt tail wind we got back, the sun was out and cloud base back up to 2500 ft. within mins that all changed. It turned out to be a good thing as I always wanted to say I had a beer at the Birdsville pub. They have a horse race here once a year in the outback, many if not most people flying in for the great day.

Salt ponds near Esperance. Mostly white, with the odd green and yellow one.

Almost at Busselton.

Seeing mum at my home town of Busselton.
